tomcat 8.0x java.util.logging.Logger.log to file

tomcat 8.0x java.util.logging.Logger.log to file

tomcat 8.0x java.util.logging.Logger.log to file

I'm using

CODE -->

private static final java.util.logging.Logger LOGGER = java.util.logging.Logger.getLogger(MyClass.class.getName());
LOGGER.log(Level.INFO, "log message); 
style to log in my java web application.

I start tomcat 8.0.21 from startup.bat (project requirement) on windows 10. I can see all the logging in console window, including java.util.logging.Logger.log logging. But I can't see any java.util.logging.Logger.log logging in tomcat standard log files - %tomcat%/logs/catalina.2018-07-31.log and localhost.2018-07-31.log.

I can see all the tomcat logging, but not my web application logging. I need to track some problems with my web application on client machines in production, because I can't model such problems on my local computer.

I need to see my logging along with other tomcat logging in %tomcat%/logs/catalina.<current_date>.log. It would be better to to use tomcat logging configuration for all the projects. But using a per-project configuration is acceptable too. I have Googled the whole day, but all the recipes I found did not work for me.

Please don't offer to use log4j. Using java.util.logging is a project requirement. Here is my %tomcat%/conf/logging.properties file

CODE -->

handlers = 1catalina.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler, 2localhost.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler, java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler

.handlers = 1catalina.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler, java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler

.level = INFO

1catalina.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.level = ALL
1catalina.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.directory = ${catalina.base}/logs
1catalina.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.prefix = catalina.

2localhost.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.level = ALL
2localhost.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.directory = ${catalina.base}/logs
2localhost.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.prefix = localhost.

3manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.level = ALL
3manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.directory = ${catalina.base}/logs
3manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.prefix = manager.

4host-manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.level = ALL
4host-manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.directory = ${catalina.base}/logs
4host-manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler.prefix = host-manager.

java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = ALL
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.formatter = org.apache.juli.OneLineFormatter

org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].level = ALL
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].handlers = 2localhost.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler

org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].level = ALL
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].handlers = 3manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler

org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].level = ALL
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].handlers = 4host-manager.org.apache.juli.AsyncFileHandler

mycompany.package1.level = ALL

RE: tomcat 8.0x java.util.logging.Logger.log to file

Maybe you need to define the java.util.logging.config.file parameter as said here


RE: tomcat 8.0x java.util.logging.Logger.log to file

java.util.logging.config.file property is used to specify logging properties file to use. In my case tomcat uses ${catalina.base}/conf/logging.properties normally. Tomcat reads configuration from file above. The problem I face is I can't see any console output in tomcat log files.
